Before we get started let me just whet your appetite about what is contained in the rest of this article. The results of the most important study on aging EVER, that will be the most important study of aging for all time- have just been released! Steve Horvath’s :

The study proves conclusively that aging is selected for by evolution and is programmed. A result that contradicts all major mainstream theories of aging that have been proposed since the early 1900’s. It turns out August Weisman got the right answer in 1882 but with the wrong reasoning.
The new study also reveals the true cause of aging at the cellular level- the programmed loss of cellular differentiation.
